Borussia Dortmund are reportedly willing to let Roman Bürki for a fee of just five million euros, as they look to bring in a new goalkeeper this summer. This is being reported by SportBILD, who add that Gregor Kobel is emerging as the top candidate to become the Black and Yellows’ next first choice goalkeeper.

Bürki only signed a contract extension with Borussia Dortmund at the end of last season, but fell out of favour earlier this year. He hasn’t played since late January, with Edin Terzic preferring to go with Marwin Hitz between the sticks.

Bürki still has more than two years left on his BVB contract, but he is free to leave for a cut-price fee of five million euros. It is being reported that Borussia Dortmund will only sign a new goalkeeper if the 30 year old is sold this summer. Sport1’s Patrick Berger reported on Tuesday that there have been no interesting offers for him so far.

SportBILD believe that Borussia Dortmund’s new number one could be Gregor Kobel, who is enjoying an impressive season with VfB Stuttgart. The report adds that Dortmund have been scouting the 23 year old for a long time, and he would be available in the summer for a fee of around 15 million euros. Kobel still has three years left on his Stuttgart contract.

Kobel is not the only goalkeeper attracting interest from Borussia Dortmund. Péter Gulásci, Koen Casteels, Alexander Nübel, Odysseas Vlachodimos and Bartlomiej Dragowski have all been linked with a move to the Signal Iduna Park in recent weeks.
